Abstract

Within this paper we are pointing out to a positive example of the Vrshnik ore body (as one of the four ore bodies in the Buchim Mine) through three stages of its “life” (exploration, exploitation and partial inner backfilling). Since the early beginnings of the geological exploration of the Buchim deposit, the Vrshnik ore body was given special attention. However, that attention intensifies in the period from 1972 until 2010, when the most detailed data for qualitative-quantitative characteristics of the ore body Vrsnik are given in Study of 2010, where total calculated reserves of about 13 Mt were highlighted while additional mining project confirmed that exploitable will be 9 Mt of ore. The exploitation in the ore body Vrsnik commenced in 2011 and until June 2015 exploitation has ended in the southern part of the deposit at mine level 615/630 m. In this southern part just over 2 Mt of ore were exploited, which created the real possibility that final pit be reclaimed. For the purposes of this reclamation is planned to use so-called solid mine waste. Open surface mine in southern Vrsnik gradually was filled with waste material, which by additional mining project can be stored in a total volume of about 3 million tons.
